    When I got home tonight one of my chick as a hurt foot. It is walking around limping but on the hurt foot it is walking on top of its foot. It is just hanging so when she sets it down the top of the foot is on the bottom. Not sure if that makes sense. We are so upset about this. I have no idea what happened to her. What should I do for her?

    I noticed a chick of mine today doing the same thing. Mine is walking on the tops of both feet and kind of just "hanging out" on one side of the brooder, against the wall. She moves around, but kind of lurches in her movement. Not sure if I should just let nature take its course, or help her in some way. She is about 2 weeks old. June in AK
